Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Syrah James Berry Vineyard is sensational, as one might expect from this grand cru site. The wine has fabulous purity of fruit, blackberries and cassis intermixed with licorice, camphor, and a touch of crushed rocks. It is powerful, but at the same time, the cool limestone soils seem to give it an elegance that belies the wine's weight, richness, and power. Its dense purple color, wonderful, multi-layered mouthfeel, and stunning finish of close to a minute make for a compelling Syrah that should drink beautifully for 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorPure and rich, showing ripe, lively blueberry and wild berry aromas, with fragrant notes. Firms up on the finish, where this flexes its tannic muscles. Drink now through 2012. 289 cases made.
